Australian jazz vocalist Lillian Albazi and her band are making their Albury debut for an exclusive afternoon show as part of Music in the Gardens.
Having just completed her national tour in celebration of her highly anticipated debut album, After-Image which was released in June 2021 at The JazzLab in Melbourne, she is coming together with her acclaimed outfit to celebrate the past year and celebrate new music that they have been creating in between tour stops and while being on the road.
On the captivating debut album After-Image, Lillian and her band renew the familiar with deft, complex takes on classic and contemporary standards, performing a range of modern jazz styles with wit, playfulness and sombre romanticism.
From the rapid grooves of the opening medley, You Don’t Know What Love Is/Lullaby Of Birdland, to the haunting closing track of Rowland S. Howard’s Autoluminescent, After-Image confirms Albazi as of a bold new voice in Australian jazz.
Lillian and her band will be presenting repertoire from After-Image coupled with new material that they have been workshopping in the past couple of weeks of being home. This is an afternoon not to be missed.
